A family-friendly bike ride through Wanstead Park will take place on 12 June to help raise funds for the park’s new playground.

“The route is suitable for all ages as it follows the wide, circular shared-use path around the Ornamental Water, and is just 3km long. Meet opposite the Tea Hut at 1.30pm for a quick bike check; families will set off from 2pm. All under-12s must be accompanied by an adult,” said a Friends of Wanstead Parklands spokesperson.

The suggested donation is £5 to £10 per family. The money raised will go towards equipment for a new natural children’s playground behind the Temple.

“The aim of the playground project is to provide a variety of stimulating natural play opportunities for two- to 10-year-olds with a range of abilities to develop physical, social and emotional skills through exploration and interaction.”
